An additional note: As most trail users are aware, we use stickered posts like the one pictured below, to designate trails and trail junctions. The trail junction posts also include directional arrows. This summer we have seen a strange increase in folks removing the stickers from the posts. It is nearly impossible to remove the stickers in one piece so we are at a loss to understand why someone would do this. The stickers are relatively expensive to manufacture and it requires a staff member to go replace them when the stickers are removed so it is a fairly costly endeavor when the removal is spread across two hundred miles of trails. If you happen to see someone removing signs or stickers, and they aren’t wearing a ranger jersey or trail crew shirt, please let us know, as they are costing the system money that is better spent elsewhere and also potentially causing another trail user to head in a direction they weren’t anticipating.
Have a great weekend and Happy Trails!

The Boise Foothills provide a postcard backdrop that inspires and soothes the soul. An interconnected network of roads and trails courses through the hills, linking not only neighborhoods with public lands but also connecting people with the natural environment. With over 190 miles of trails, there is something for everyone. Here we provide ideas and tips about where to go, how to enjoy the foothills without damaging them and information about the area you may find interesting. As you explore, notice the diversity in the land, the plants and the animals, then imagine our community without this unique treasure. You can help protect and care for this special place by learning more about the land and its needs.
